Cathy Marie started quilting in the mid 90’s when her sister convinced her (technically it was blackmail) to take a local quilting class.

The instructor was particularly tacky and rude about her non-traditional choices and Cathy Marie decided to become a quilt class drop-out.

Despite this lackluster beginning, she has pushed herself to take many more classes (from much less tacky instructors), and become an avid quilter and teacher.

She is also the mom to two of the most amazing young people on the planet who are the center of her mountain paradise home.
